From Monday 1st May the album will be available through digital outlets.

Down With The Yoof is written from the point of view of Nick's teenage children who suspect he might be trying too hard to cling on to his.

The lyrics should you want them...

We started in St. Margaret’s Hospice then YMCA
now it’s British Heart Foundation it’s the seventh one today
and I’m wading through the PC games and books and DVDs
so far I’ve found more than twenty seven Bourne Identitys
and I sit down by the changing room and have a little rest
and I see you with a Wrangler top held up against your chest
I realise you’re serious and my heart begins to sink
as you smile and suck in your gut and ask “What do you think?”

You should put that shirt back on the rail, pretend it wasn’t there
We all kept quiet when you mentioned growing out your hair
But someone’s gotta tell you and I feel kinda bad
But I don’t wanna be the kid with the double denim dad

I don’t mind you hugging me in front of all my mates
And I let it go when you say ‘bae’, ‘amazeballs’, ‘totes’ and ‘blates’
And I understand that sometimes you are gonna wanna dance
Even if it is the can-can you did-did last year in France
I can even cope with Speedos when you take me to the pool
Or flirting with my RE teacher at meetings after school
Or hoonin’ down the High Street, music blaring out the roof
Although Besta Venya’s not exactly ‘Down with the Yoof’

You can put that shirt back on the rail, pretend it wasn’t there
We all kept quiet when you mentioned growing out your hair
But someone’s gotta tell you and I feel kinda bad
But I don’t wanna be the kid with the double denim dad

I know it’s your decision and you have every right
But Whitney dressing up as Britney’s not a pretty sight
I know you’re getting older and I know it must be hard
but know that I am proud of you just the way you are

So put that shirt back on the rail, pretend it wasn’t there
We all kept quiet when you mentioned growing out your hair
Someone’s got to tell you and I feel kinda bad
But I don’t wanna be the kid with the double denim dad
No I don’t wanna be the kid with the double denim dad
